A Penny For Your Poem - Poem by JOE POEWHIT

So I'm broke again.
Empty belly, no haircut or friend.
What is that, that you want? ? ?
I make noise on paper-friend.
Empty belly, no coins-AND!
Onward I go like a spinning top.
Life is one big lot.
Even the dogs run from me.
Can't ask them for a fee.
What is there to do in life.
Crazy kids, home, wife.
They just take the pay.
What's more, I have no say.
A penny for your poem, '[is pay]'.
Then others will just say.
Come back another day.
Where is that penny of pay? ? ? ? ?
Cell phone ringing - bookie HAY! ! ! !

2006 from Scribble ? ? ? ?
